I love trying to be creative and smart, but at the end of the day the content like videos and blog posts I create are not as good as they could be.
Someone is always doing the same thing better. Yes I know I mustn’t compare myself to others, but seriously who doesn’t.
I often times have ideas in my head for a videos, interviews and blog posts, but 1) I have a hard time getting the ideas out in to a full thought out piece of content, and 2) when I do make the content if is not up to par for my standards and others. I see others create stuff and I love it, they make it look good and for some reason I can’t do the same, at least to the standards I think it should.
I must continue to remind myself that every time I try something I learn from it. Every time I see something I think looks good I should take tips from it for next time.
When I see something that I think is better than something I have done, I go through a couple different stages. At first I will like it, think it is nice. That I will hate it, and myself thinking about how careless I was about what I created and how someone else is always better. Then I will start becoming more realistic and try and forget about it and move on and take a lesson from it. Finally I come to this stage where I think about what I need to take away from it and apply it to the next time.
Eventually I will know how to look, write, produce and create something that I will be comfortable with. Or rather eventually I will come to grips with myself and not let others bother me.
